Are you hot?
« on: July 27, 2010, 11:15:39 AM »
Where is all this "record heat" I keep hearing about? We have not come close to our record high temps around here. We haven't had them in awhile.  :roll:

It's cloudy and spot's of sun about 66F and about 20 miles an hour wind but the bees are out working.

It's been in the high 90s here for about a month now...whew!

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

The heat is in michigan!   Very warm and very very humid!   Just don't seem to want to do much of anything in this weather.  Need to get firewood cut for the winter but haven't started yet!  Bees seem to like the weather though, course there isn't much out there forem now.

OK but I am talking about the record heat. This is suppose to be the hottest past three months ever in recorded history, yet here we haven't hit the record numbers in years.

It's hot here, but not what I would consider record hot by any means.    averaging 90-95 daily for oh six weeks or so.  We haven't hit any record daily highs to my knowledge yet though.

It has been 98 to 100 with a heat index of 105 for about three week now. The humidity is unbearable. The forecast is 99 every day for the rest of the week. It has been hot here but not for such a long time. Three people have died this week due to the heat.

I will hate to see my power bill but I want to be cool when I get home after working in it all day.

we have been cooler.  we are just now starting to hit normal temps.

They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Here in Chicago we have been in the low 90's, but haven't hit any records.  In fact we haven't gotten above 100 degrees since 2005 and it doesn't look like we will this year either.  I think it's just the Mid-Atlantic and south east states that are getting it.

They're having as heat wave this year in the only place that counts to the New York centered news - New England. - I went up in the middle of this month and it was pretty rough. Many of them still aren't big believers in Central AC, so a pretty bearable heat for us down south is inescapable horror up there. I was forced to face how spoiled I am by central AC, but someone without central AC here is as foolish as someone without a decent way to heat their house is up there. It was only about as hot as our late spring, but by then we have the air running. I could see if your normal summer highs peak at about 75 - 80 with 60s at night and no central air it can get miserable. I wouldn't give 'global climate warming change thingy' a second thought - there were heat waves recorded before.

its been pretty hot here, but I think my location is cheating in a hot contest. Hottest we saw so far was 139 but lately its been nice humidity around 25% temps around 115-120

well at least they let you put on all that extra gear to protect yourself from the heat. :roll: (When I worked a stone's throw from Yuma 115+/-F, I told one of the whiners to think of you guys - at least we were in Tee shirts, no shorts allowed, and could leave whatever gear we didn't need on the ground.)

Keith--you're not cheating, your heat definitely counts! Nothing like Middle Eastern heat to keep us all humble. Makes my sunglasses fog up just thinking about it. Do you wear a veil working your bees in that heat?

Here in Southwest Ohio, we're getting a break. Well, except for yesterday. Felt like a sauna. I bend the rules and go into the hives in the morning. Bees seem quieter then, too, and not as many on the outside of the hive.

Thank you for your service Keith,

Here in Washingon we didn't hit 75 degrees until mid June, the previous record for the latest day in the year to reach 75 degrees was May 5th.  We are still running about 5-10 degrees below normal through July and into August.

We've had long stretches of 90+ deg. days this summer than in recent years, with  many days in the 95 100 deg. area. I dislike the heat and humidity.  :(

I remember it being over a hundred many a time and up around 110 and 111 in Mitchell, NE, although Scottsbluff (the official site of recording such things) was only about 108 or so,  back in the early 80s.  The chickens and the dog were panting all day long and the bees were bearding badly  and all of them were going through a lot of water.

Nothing now is all that close to that.

On a working vacation in So. Cal, and everyone from Redlands to Ojai says it's been the best summer ever. Highs in the upper '80s, but low humidity. Redlands is high desert, can't believe how nice the weather is for August. Can't wait to get back to Cincinnati...NOT.

Hot?   I put a box out for the bees to clean up that I have been saving for swarms.    I took them in this afternoon a little late.   You are looking at the wax melting.

Thanks Allen! You cleared up a mystery for me  :-D I was wondering why some of my frames looked "smooshed" like that.

My thermom read 107 today and I believe it. 630am I was getting frames ready and sweating like crazy. Thermometer read 84.
According to Cincy's news stations our "official" temp today was 96 but I'm an hour south of cincy so...yeah, i think its way hotter here  :evil:  After this week, I'm looking forward to an alberta clipper..hehe.
